Steve Boggs, MD'83

When the author discovered that his oldest, closest friend was recovering from brain surgery, he made a decision. He decided to write her a letter every day for several months, to fill in the years that they had not spent together.

By turns amusing, uplifting, humorous, and sad, collectively they are inspirational. They are a testament to the fact that letter writing is not a lost art and remains one of the closest forms of communication.

The stories are vignettes of travel (Mexico, Honduras, France, Puerto Rico, and Turkey, among other places), anecdotes from his medical career, and many tales that occurred simply by virtue of having lived in the South. Plus, coming to terms with his mother’s dementia.
